Does anyone know how to remove a logo without harming the nylon fabric?Jan 2, 2008 at 5:30 pm #1414614
yes, with a black texter………..

I've used a Sharpie, with middling results. Grey's it out so it stands out less. Taking off patches is much more satisfying.Jan 2, 2008 at 6:18 pm #1414620

I will be using this pack for a trip to the Middle East, and would rather not be walking through bazaars and medinas with a pack that's got a huge KELTY emblazoned across. Actually, that's a secondary reason — the primary one is that I just plain hate stuff with logos.Jan 2, 2008 at 8:48 pm #1414649
OK. Here are another couple of helpful solutions:
1) put an American flag on top and make your self a "too obvious " target
( in most countries people tend to avoid lunatics)
2) Buy a Texport tent . Cut the logo from the stuff sack and stick it on top of the Kelty. This should be cheaper than buying the label alone and nobody will want to steal that.Jan 2, 2008 at 8:53 pm #1414650

If it is a thread logo like many Kelty packs, you should be able to cut or break the threads. You will have to do this a few at a time so it may take a while, and will also leave holes where it went through the nylon, but it will get rid of it.
The easy way is the black Sharpie idea.Jan 2, 2008 at 9:14 pm #1414653

You could put this over it:
Seriously though, maybe a pin is a viable option.Jan 2, 2008 at 9:18 pm #1414654

Sew a scrap of 1.1 black nylon over it.
I wonder if your Kelty pack has more international cachet than my Rick Steves daypack? :-DJan 3, 2008 at 1:09 pm #1414732

Buy a large peace sign to sew over the logo…Jan 8, 2008 at 7:19 pm #1415385
Embroidered labels are hard to remove without damaging the fabric, but a seam ripper (available at sewing stores) is a great aid. Just use patience and care.Jan 9, 2008 at 7:52 am #1415436

why don't you just get a seam ripper and rip the threads out. If it is like every other kelty sign I've seen its all thread. Just rip it out.Jan 9, 2008 at 11:11 am #1415460
My pack should arrive on Friday. Right now, I don't know whether the stupid logo is "painted" on or sewn on. Assuming the latter, wouldn't there be a million holes after I rip out the logo threads???Jan 9, 2008 at 2:39 pm #1415482
Some fabrics 'self heal' more than others, but yes there will be holes left and if you're that worried about it, take the excellent advise ALREADY offered of a sharpie/black ink, or a custom patch or black fabric applied. Better yet, make your own pack.Jan 9, 2008 at 4:15 pm #1415504

I don't know how much it will help you in the middle east to just take off the logo. I was in Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, Aman, and all over the west bank in April and May of 2005. No matter what you're going to stick out, even with wearing neutral clothes. I stuck out, but I also was careful were to go.Jan 9, 2008 at 5:26 pm #1415524

If all else fails, you might consider sewing a Peoples Republic of China or Vietnamese flag over the offending logo. Neither country has a history of mistreating Arab countries, or Israel, for that matter. Used to be a Canadian flag, but not since 2001 and the invasion of Afghanistan.
